A WARNING over fly-posting has been issued to Royston Town Council.

The trouble came after a sign for this year's classic car show - an event run during the Royston May Fayre - was erected at the junction of Newmarket Road and Melbourn Road, Royston.

North Herts District Council took action after its licensing officer had seen the sign.

But it said it would not be prosecuting the town council.

A statement from the district council said, however, that in future any signs displayed should have the "necessary permission" to be erected.

The statement continued: "The district council does recognise the value of advertising local events, but this needs to be balanced with the road safety considerations."

No-one at the town council was available for comment on Wednesday afternoon.
